Other “media and community trailblazers” who will be recognized at the Torch Bearer Awards Night on December 2 include Alex Esclamado of the Philippine News (50 years in print); Julie and Joselito de Joya for television (1980s); Joseling Santisteban for television (1980s); Ness Ocampo for radio (40 years running); Mona Lisa Yuchengco for National Glossy Magazine, founder Filipinas Magazine (founded 1992); Peachy Pelaez for Community Events (1970s); and Jossie and Mark Alegre, who have been PAPC board members since 1991.

The awards will be presented at HanaZen, Pier 39, in San Francisco, California.
